The story goes that at some point this was one of the largest factories in the world but spies had infiltrated the factory to steel their secret receipt for making some of the best pliers on the planet. Mr. Channel then closed the factory to the public but continued to produce his great pliers thanks to the help of some mysterious workers. This week the doors were again opened for a special engagement where Mr. Channel let in a select few whom had found Golden Tickets in the pairs of ChannelLocks they had recently purchased… Ok that was the plot for Willy Wonka.
The ChannelLock factory was opened up to several folks from the Tool Media and there are some great photos floating around facebook right now from several different sources. Check out our buddies over at Tool Box Buzz, A Concord Carpenter or One Project Closer for some additional photos and history of ChannelLock.
